Refreshment doesn’t come much better than this…
29 April 2020

Mature German Riesling is one of life’s great pleasures. Unrivalled in the world of white wine, its famous aging capacity stems from the combination of electrifying cool-climate acidities and balancing residual sweetness. Indeed, the finest off-dry and medium-sweet Rieslings that charm with their plucky, fruity personalities in youth, often prove themselves models of cool, latent potential over time. Given the right conditions, these stunning traditional Rieslings offer deeply complex, yet utterly joyful, drinking experiences. Suffice to say, most German lovers can recall the moment they first experienced its magic first-hand: the bottle that lit the touch-paper for a life-long love affair with this truly individual style of wine. We hope that today’s offer might yield a few epiphanies – a flash of inspiration for the as yet uninitiated, a treat for those already in tune with its qualities. For over the past sixteen years, the Saarburger Rausch Riesling Spätlese 2004, as produced by the Saar’s Forstmeister Geltz-Zilliken, has become a mighty swan; its sugar and acids so finely interwoven that, within a few sips, neither one is obvious. Instead they merely contour a beautiful, refreshing Riesling imbued with essential oils, salt, and fresh, creamy stone fruit. With time in the glass, it’s as if the Rausch itself begins to stir; those cool slate soils imparting a spicy, earthbound quality to the wine – a base from which higher-toned exotic flowers, wild honey and highland grasses begin to emerge. Truly a wine in its prime, this ’04 Spätlese is a model of levity and poise.    Read More
